Configure Network Proxy Settings

When you use a proxy server to connect to the Internet, you must specify the proxy server details. The Network Proxy Settings window lets you enter automatic configuration settings, proxy settings, and proxy server authentication settings. The Network Proxy settings let you connect to the Internet while you perform tasks such as activating the service or accessing the support options.

Configure Network Proxy Settings

  1. In the Norton main window, click Settings.

  2. In the Settings window, under Detailed Settings, click Administrative Settings.

  3. In the Network Proxy Settings row, click Configure.

  4. In the Network Proxy Settings window, do the following:

    • If you want your browser to automatically detect network connection settings, under Automatic Configuration, check Automatically detect settings.

    • If the proxy server requires an automatic configuration URL, under Automatic Configuration, check Use automatic configuration script. Type the URL of the PAC file in the URL box.

    • If your network uses a proxy server, under Proxy Settings, check Use a proxy server for your HTTP connections. In the Address box, type the URL or IP address of your proxy server, and in the Port box, type the port number of your proxy server. You can specify a value from 1 to 65535.

    • If your proxy server requires a user name and password, under Authentication, check I need authentication to connect through my firewall or proxy server. Type the user name in the Username box and password in the Password box.

  5. In the Network Proxy Settings window, click Apply.

Thank you!
